No end in sight : Iraq's descent into chaos by Charles H Ferguson ( Book )
8 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 816 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"A ... chronicle of the reasons behind Iraq's descent into guerrilla war, warlord rule, criminality, and anarchy ... It features candid interviews with high-ranking officials ... as well as Iraqi civilians, American soldiers, intelligence officers, and prominent analysts... Together, these voices reveal the principal errors of U.S. policy -- using insufficient troop levels, allowing the looting of Baghdad, purging professionals from the Iraq government, and disbanding the Iraqi military -- errors that largely created the insurgency and chaos that engulf Iraq today. The book brings the movie up-to-date by evaluating the military's recent 'surge' tactic as well as current administration policy. It concludes with a wide-ranging debate on the crucial question: what do we do now?"--P. [4] of cover
Predator nation : corporate criminals, political corruption, and the hijacking of America by Charles H Ferguson ( Book )
7 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 786 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Over the last several decades, the United States has undergone one of the most radical social and economic transformations in its history: Finance has become America's dominant industry, while manufacturing has nearly disappeared. The financial sector has become increasingly criminalized, with widespread fraud going completely unpunished. Federal tax collections are at their lowest level in sixty years, with the wealthy enjoying the greatest tax reductions. Most shockingly, the United States, so long the beacon of opportunity for the ambitious poor, has become one of the world's most unequal societies. If you're smart and a hard worker, but your parents aren't rich, you're now better off being born in Munich or Singapore than in Cleveland or New York. This radical shift did not happen by accident. Author Ferguson shows how, since the Reagan administration, both major political parties have become captives of the moneyed elite. The Clinton administration dismantled the regulatory controls that protected the average citizen from avaricious financiers. The Bush team destroyed the federal revenue base with its tax cuts for the rich. And the Obama White House has allowed financial criminals to continue to operate unchecked, even after supposed "reforms" installed after the collapse of 2008.--From publisher description

No end in sight Iraq's descent into chaos : the inside story from the ultimate insiders ( Visual )
2 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"On the 19th of March 2003, forces from the United States and a handful of allied nations invaded Iraq to remove Saddam Hussein from power. American military leaders expected the conflict to last no more than a few months and President George W. Bush declared that major military operations were over less than two months later. However, Iraq soon became a dangerous quagmire for American forces and, near the end of 2006, Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld, one of the key architects of America's strategy in Iraq, resigned from office due to public outcry. Bush then declared he was "rethinking" his plan of attack in Iraq as the nation sank into civil war, with U.S. troops the frequent targets of attacks from both sides. How and why did America's leaders decide to invade Iraq? How did they formulate a strategy that went so far wrong? And can anything be done to salvage the situation? Filmmaker Charles Ferguson, a former advisor with the Brookings Institution, examines these questions in No End in Sight, a documentary on the War in Iraq which includes interviews with a number of figures involved in the conflict's decision-making process, some speaking on-camera about the war for the first time"--Container
No end in sight Iraq's descent into chaos : the inside story from the ultimate insiders ( Visual )
2 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In interviews with Deputy Secretary of State, Richard Armitage, Ambassador Barbara Bodine, Colonel Lawrence Wilkerson and General Jay Garner, this video examines the manner in which the principal errors of U.S. policy in Iraq largely created the insurgency and chaos that engulf Iraq today. Shows how the use of insufficient troops, allowing the looting of Baghdad, the purging of Iraqi government professionals, and the disbanding of the Iraqi military have led to lawlessness and mayhem. Further, by not understanding the tribal rivalries, the warlords and fiefdoms, the United States has been misguided in its attempts to create a democracy in an area where autocratic rule is the norm
